Dexter’s thoughts:

“I feel that we have the personnel and drive as a team to make it to the next level. I hope to play a vital part in helping my team accomplish this.”

Coach Kevin Shillcox’s thoughts:

“I was real pleased with Dexter’s performance for us in our first game (a 28-14 win over Kettle Moraine Lutheran). Obviously we have have areas where we’re never happy but he’s going to be fine. He’s a real coachable kid and he’s going to have a real good season for us. Dexter is a threat to run or pass so we’re letting him make the decisions on what will work best. Off the field he’s just a great kid all around. He’s the kind of role model you want for your team.”
